This epic tale of Indian democracy concerns Bhasker Sanyal (Naseeruddin Shah), a firey leftist politician who makes a single mistake that compromises his respectability and power. His fall affects nearly a dozen other people, including a family member who wanted nothing to do with the world of politics. Raajneeti was directed by Prakash Jha. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film -- full of romance, intrigue and fraternal strife -- is too diffuse to score political points. Or to have much impact."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"A contrived, overlong, convoluted and emotionally hollow political thriller that's high on production values and style, but low on substance, palpable suspense and poignancy."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Prakash Jha aims for something trenchant about thwarted destiny and ugly ambition in modern Indian democracy but mostly winds up with a convoluted and tonally awkward Godfather rehash, with nary a character worth rooting for."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"The partly stiff-acting and tear-inducing reveals shroud the film's more earnest efforts at dissecting the bureaucratic, back-alley dealings."
‑ Adam Keleman, Slant Magazine
"More pulpy than political, this Godfather-ripoff Hindi electoral drama is a candidate for oblivion in U.S. theatres."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
